I’ve received a few additions to my list of working-class collections. Because I’m still grading papers (or should be grading papers, but instead went to a talk by Craig Baldwin and a screening of his movie Sonic Outlaws at Counterpath Bookstore and Gallery), I’ll take this opportunity to list them here:
Erika Meitner - Steve Scafidi’s Sparks From a Nine Pound Hammer, Michael McGriff, both Dickman brothers, and Fire Wheel by Sharmila Voorakara
Michael Flatt - Mark Nowak’s Shut Up, Shut Down
Ron Silliman – Rae Armantrout, Kit Robinson
And I’ll add Ron Silliman, Bill Knott, and the Working Words anthology published by Coffee House Press.
Also, all the books recommended by Karen Weyant in her guest blogpost.
